Joe Coughlin is nineteen when he meets Emma Gould. A smalltime thief in 1920s Boston, he is told to cuff her while his accomplices raid the casino she works for. But Joe falls in love with Emma - and his life changes for ever.

That meeting is the beginning of Joe's journey to becoming one of the nation's most feared and respected gangsters. It is a journey beset by violence, double-crossing, drama and pain. And it is a journey into the soul of prohibition-era America...

A powerful, deeply moving novel, Live By Night is a tour-de-force by Dennis Lehane, writer on The Wire and author of modern classics such as Shutter Island, Gone, Baby, Gone and The Given Day.

Review:

A gripping rollercoaster of a ride through the darker days of American social history . . . pure class (Herald Sun)

His best novel yet, this sprawling gangster yarn so well corralled by Lehane's superb, direct style of writing and attention to detail (Daily Telegraph Australia)

Once again Dennis Lehane, author of Mystic River and Shutter Island, creates great characters, great atmosphere and a plot that keeps rolling along, page after page (Courier Mail)

A gripping ride (Townsville Bulletin)

I've been waiting for this book ever since I first saw it on the publisher's release list about six months ago . . . A crime drama, a love story and a historical tale all rolled into one expertly written novel. Very highly recommended (Illawarra Mercury)

Lehane's vivid, detailed prose ripples with tension (The Australian Way)

This is dark, gritty and amoral stuff (Sunday Age)

A compelling read, but certainly not one for the faint of heart (Sunday Herald Sydney)

Lehane gives fascinating treatment to the life of an outlaw . . . His writing is powerful and moving, inviting you in (Manly Daily)

Live by Night is up there with [Lehane's] best work (Newtown Review of Books)
